Parents only care how much you empower their child to solve a problem through Kids Life Coaching

Uncategorized Apr 16, 2019

Parents only truly care how much you empower their children to solve a problem. FACT!

They don’t want you to fix or judge or advise or be “airy fairy” with hypothetical ways. They don’t want theory....they don’t want textbook recommendations....they want practical ways of working through life....

What counts is sharing constructive and proven methods that give children a toolkit for dealing with life’s ups and downs with ease! This is what my Kids Life Coaching model offers. A structured way for dealing with life by laying the foundation for positive mental well being and building resilience. 

Labels don’t matter and understanding the perceived problem doesn’t matter...what matters is results! 

You can only get results with a measurable system and a recipe that works each and every time with any child anywhere with any challenge...

If you can’t do that you will constantly be reinventing the wheel....you are not being...

Never give up on your dream of being a Kids Life Coach

Uncategorized Apr 04, 2019

As the founder of The Kids Life Studio® and The Kids Life Coach Academy, I organically started coaching children in my classroom as a teacher in 1992...

Then I transitioned to part-time coaching outside of my classroom in 2003 after building my own coaching model....

Then from 2005 I coached full time in my own Kids Life Studio space - I was seeing approximately 60 children a week for individual and small group coaching at the height of my career....

Then from 2009 I started training adults to use my coaching methods...

In 2014 I started building a global team of children’s change makers! I now work less with children and only take on a select few per year because that way I have time to mentor and invest into professionals who want to be career Kids Life Coaches.

Sooooooo why am I sharing this with you....

Not to impress you with my experience....or to tell you about my achievements, but to show you how committed I am to children! I have never ever given up on my dream to...

The secret behind financial success as a Kids Life Coach

Uncategorized Feb 12, 2019

Today I was asked the question by somebody thinking of enrolling in my training when she can expect to start "seeing the fruits of her labour". When I first interviewed her, I made her aware that my training takes work and I have made it clear she will have to put in the elbow grease, but she is a single mom and so there is a certain risk involved as she needs to support her child. 

She isn't the first person that has asked me this and it got thinking as to what the difference is between a financially successful Kids Life Coach and one that isn't. For purposes of this I want to first unpack the meaning of success in the context of coaching children. 

Over the past 16 years I have coached thousands of children from all backgrounds, cultures, demographics....for me the success comes when:

  • I can measure a child's progress pre and post coaching and see positive results. (I have an online assessment tool that does that), 
  • I know a child is happier, more motivated and that...

We have a world class global team of Kids Life Coaches

Uncategorized Jan 08, 2019

Every Monday our global team of Kids Life Studio® Coaches and I have a group coaching call. We call this “Mindset Monday”!

During this time we sometimes have guest coaches and authors who share their wisdom and give us new perspectives. The aim is to build our mindset toolbox so that we can maximise our results.

So yesterday was our first official group coaching call of the year BUT...

The universe had other plans...

....and I was unable to make it and also unable to let anybody in my team know that I couldn’t be there!

Since these meetings are usually led by myself, I anticipated our team doing a casual New Year meet and greet and having a chit chat catch up!

What transpired was magical!!

These self led change makers for children embraced the opportunity and apparently lots of group coaching transpired! Even though I wasn’t there they took the opportunity....

These remarkable people give willingly of their time outside of their working day to learn...

Why we are proud to be the leading global training provider of Kids Life Coaching

Uncategorized Jan 04, 2019

I was having a strategy call with a potential new Kids Life Coach trainee yesterday when I had my first AHA moment for 2019!

I realised that nothing beats REAL on the ground experience with methods that actually work and get measurable results!

When I started out my coaching practice 16 years ago I was filled with just as much passion as I am today BUT the difference was that I hadn’t yet developed a tried and tested way of coaching children.

I used to stumble through and figure things out through trial and error...which really isn’t fair to the children I was coaching...in retrospect! I had good intentions and I eventually got the results but way back then they weren’t measurable statistically like they are today! I was just good at figuring things out and offering the best I could!

I see so many people who like me...have passion yet don’t back that up with PROPER education and knowledge when it comes to coaching children. I have a bachelor of education...

Kids Life Coach Training should never compromise on quality

Uncategorized Dec 11, 2018

Today I have quite a few interviews lined up. People I am speaking to who are interested in training with me as a certified Kids Life Coach. I don’t know how they find me...but they do!

I have learnt in my 15 years of business that there is a fine line in terms of pushing too hard in marketing! Sometimes you have to spend time laying a solid foundation (for me it was 15 years) before you reap the rewards!

I see so many perceived “competitors” send out fluffy frilly e-mail campaigns (I used to do that until I realised actions speak louder than window dressing!) and what they say is good on paper but not always solid in practice.

They compete on price and charge a smaller investment fee to gain a higher revenue with through traffic! I realised long ago that this model of doing things can be fundamentally flawed (I know because once upon a time I did the same....before I knew better!)

You see it is easy to deliver content with no accountability....

But....I decided I...

How will you start your journey as a Kids Life Coach?

Uncategorized Nov 28, 2018

I started my journey as a Kids Life Coach purely through need.

I used to be a teacher and after getting an additional Honours degree in Psychology of Education I realised there was more to teaching and supporting children than what I was doing!

So I started researching and looking at ways I could support children with long-term sustainable results!

Way back in 2003 there were no child life coach trainings and so I delved into:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Neuro Linguistic Programming
Social Psychology
Positive Psychology
Emotional Intelligence

And very very lastly...I discovered:

ADULT life coaching.

I got really excited when I discovered the coaching side of things until....

I realised that it wasn’t AT ALL applicable to children.

The concepts were based on tried and tested traditional theory and children need more than that.

I realised because their brain and body are still developing my approach needed to be unique!

So I created my own programme based on the areas I had...

Kids Life Coaching is a proven intervention that is equal to therapy

Uncategorized Nov 22, 2018

Yesterday was a profound day for me! My most memorable and life changing day of my entire 15 year career as a Kids Life Coach!

So some background first....

Last month I launched my book “The Secret Parent” and through social media it came to the awareness of Lord Patel of Bradford. He asked to see me in Parliament (in England) to speak about coaching children!

So yesterday we had a meeting that I have been preparing for intensely over the last few weeks....with much anxiety!

Not knowing what to expect I went into the House of Lords in London yesterday with one intention...to speak from my heart and personal experience. My message was clear...

“Coaching children should be mainstream but regulated and this has been my mission for 15 years and I will continue striving as this is my purpose.”

The thing is....I never got to formally present anything.. Lord Patel just intuitively picked up on my intentions and he masterfully steered the conversation to how I can...

Kids Life Coaching (when done properly) can change the structure of a child's brain

Uncategorized Oct 27, 2018

When I started coaching children 15 years ago I based some of my approach on Dr Amens groundbreaking book “Change your brain change your life” and I credit my healthy views on supporting children to his eye opening research.

So when I saw this recent TED talk on "The most important lesson fro 83 000 brain scans" by Dr Daniel Amen, I was blown away yet again!

My Kids Life Coaching programme I designed is based on a lifestyle assessment that not only screens for red flags but it encourages holistic collaboration. It also has measurable results based on brain training techniques.

My global network of Kids Life Studio Coaches and I get results in as little as 2 weeks...it isn’t magic but it is using brain science on such a way that children understand and can apply it in their daily lives.

Take a watch of this talk and get some insight into why you have to assess a child fully before embarking on medication or therapy or a coaching programme that targets problems...

Are you a "fake" Kids Life Coach or a real change maker?

Uncategorized Oct 08, 2018

Anybody who truly cares about children and wants to be a change maker will never have a hidden agenda!

I have been in this game long enough to tell the difference between “fakers” and “change makers”.

I have trained hundreds of professionals around the world to use my coaching model and not all of these remain members of my Kids Life Studio network. The ones that have stayed with me are heart centred and they serve their communities with integrity and honesty and respect. They are role models that walk the walk and talk the talk....They understand the value of collaboration and team work. 

Then there are the coaches that have come and go...because they either prefer working in isolation or they don’t value themselves enough (yet) to spend money on belonging to a network of like minded professionals or they have a need to boost their status and they feel my organisation detracts from their limelight.

What I have learnt....(and trust me it has...
